Ivanka Trump visited dad Donald Trump at Mar-a-Lago before arraignment

Ivanka Trump — who released a short statement last week about her father Donald Trump’s indictment — visited him at Mar-a-Lago over the weekend before he faces charges, sources tell Page Six.

We hear that the former first daughter saw him on Sunday at his Palm Beach, Fla., fiefdom ahead of his arraignment on Tuesday in New York.

She was spotted the same day with her husband, former White House adviser Jared Kushner, at a condo owned by his parents in Bal Harbor, Fla., just over an hour away by car.

The former president, 76, was also seen playing golf that day at his private club.
The move to visit her father marked a seeming display of support for him privately — after she’d previously distanced herself from his latest White House campaign.

Ivanka, 41, managed to visit the club without being photographed.
On Friday, after a grand jury’s vote to indict her dad, Ivanka posted on Instagram, “I love my father and I love my country. Today, I am pained for both. I appreciate the voices across the political spectrum expressing support and concern.”

A source told Page Six last month that Ivanka — who was also previously an adviser in her dad’s administration — and Kushner “want nothing to do with this.”

The source added at the time, “Ivanka lost a lot of friends and her social scenes during his presidency … They want to put it in the rearview. They want it behind them.”
She had previously been backing away from politics. Another source told us the couple is instead “happy building their life in Miami.”

Kushner, 42, commented on the indictment on Friday during an appearance at the Future Investment Initiative Institute’s priority summit in Miami Beach, saying, “I think that it shows, obviously, the fear that the Democrats have of Trump and the political strength that he has.”

The former president flew to Manhattan on Monday to appear in Manhattan Supreme Court for his arraignment on Tuesday.
